Mission Statement

ZMI Foundation organizes After School and Summer Camp Programs that feature a martial arts component as one of its many core competencies. At present, the organization services the urban community of Queens, New York. We engage participants in character building activities whose values translate both to real world settings as well as traditional school settings. Our Tae Kwon Do-based approach aims to instills mental determination, self-confidence, sportsmanship, discipline, responsibility, community service and leadership in our students. ZMI builds upon self-defense principles to improve physical well-being, and additionally offers seminars on anti-bullying and gang prevention, exercise and nutrition, conflict resolution, anger management and motivational consulting.

Description

We target summer vacation and after school hours in order to provide children with a safe and educational environment during times they are most vulnerable to negative influences and misguided behavior, due to a lack of structure. ZMI Foundation is an extension of the mission of our Tae Kwon Do studio, Zen Masters, Inc. After nearly ten years of operation, we saw that there was a need in the community we serve to offer programs and services at more affordable prices, as we currently service a Title I school district--which was challenging to address as a conventional business operation. Through participating in voucher programs and generous support, ZMI Foundation strives to improve the overall net impact of our combined efforts to help serve more families, and continue to positively influence the lives of young people.
